Our football match prediction:
Tuesday's football game at Stadionul Ion Oblemenco will host Tuesday's football game between Romani and Sweden. The Tricolori did well to book their place at EURO 2014 finals, but they will not take part at the 2018 FIFA World Cup. As a result, the Romanians will participate at UEFA Nations League in September and, no doubt, they will use March friendlies to prepare in the best way possible for the tournament. The Swedes, on the other hand, play well without Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who is no longer part of the national team, so it is no surprise they are seen as favourites to win Tuesday's friendly. A man to watch in the away team will be Leipzig midfielder Emil Forsberg despite the fact that he has lost his place in the starting line-up with the Bundesliga side. Taking everything into account, we are tempted to put our money on Sweden, who are more of a team than Sweden.
Highlighted Player (Anton Tatarusanu):
Anton Ciprian Tatarusanu is one of Romania’s most famous goalkeeper at the moment, and he has surprisingly spent the majority of his career up to date in his native country. The highly rated shot-stopper joined the most famous club on domestic stage Steaua via Juventus Bucuresti and Gloria Bistrita and he would go on to spend next seven years in the capital, making over 130 league appearances and featuring in over 40 matches in European competitions. The big club move finally materialised in the summer of 2014 as he waited his contract to expire before signing for Fiorentina, and he quickly established himself as the number one goalkeeper at Artemio Franchi. When it comes to international stage, Tatarusanu has spent much of his career competing with Costel Pantilimon for the starting berth in the national team, and he has emerged a winner, making 30 odd appearances for the Tricolorii since 2010. Bar any surprises, Tatarusanu will make his debut appearance at major tournaments at the Euro 2016 finals.
Highlighted Team (Sweden):
Sweden are the most successful Nordic side on international stage having been present at major competitions since 1934. Blagult missed out on the 1952 World Cup trophy on home soil as they were beaten by star-studded Brazil side, while they finished in third place at the 1950 and 1994 tournaments, and finishing fourth on their second appearance in 1938. As far as their European Championship record is concerned, Sweden also achieved their best result in front of home fans, reaching the last four in 1992, and they have since reached the quarter-finals at Euro 1994 in Portugal. Anders Svensson and Thomas Ravelli are team’s most capped players with over 140 appearances each, but it is strikers Henrik Larsson and Zlatan Ibrahimovic that will go down as the most famous Swedish footballers in history. The later also leads the goalscoring charts with over 60 strikes for the national team and he is widely regarded as one of the most colourful characters, not only in Scandinavia, but in world football.
